People will try and tell you that the key to success is balance but I’m gonna call bullshit on that. When I have balance in my life, yes I can’t complain as things are good but equally I’m only moving forward at a moderate pace. But when I’ve got a specific goal then my balance has to go, sacrifices have to be made and I need to go all in on that one thing to help me achieve it.
You see this where I feel a lot of people go wrong with their health and fitness. You’re always trying to have balance and as a consequence you’re not getting anywhere fast as you’re not making the necessary sacrifices to take yourself to the next level.
Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying to never have balance in your life as there are times when 100% you should but you equally have to realise when that balance has to be skewed so that you can go all in on the one thing that you’re passionate about.
For example, for many of you, this time of year is your off/pre season time and now can be a good time to have balance. I tell my clients to give back to their families, spend time with friends, socialise a little, relax and unwind but then to understand when it’s GO time again and when that switch has to be flicked. That’s when we turn the screw and go all in on their goal. If you can master this, then IMO that is when you will have true success! #balance #success #goals #combinedathleticperformance #bemadeofsomethingdifferent #hybridathlete #coaching #performance #strength #endurance #physique #bikini #bodybuilding #bodytransformation #athlete #sport #fitness #health #betterbodies #wyndymilla #assos #cycling #fitfam #fitpro #inspire #motivate #workhard #believe #beyourself

Round 3 awesome venue made for some fun racing!
Heres a small sequence of how my weekend went. Hit the ground at least a dozen times....no joke.... thanks to @flomotorsports
for keeping my bike protected.
Race report: Dead engine start....my bike didn't want to fire up..someone tried bump starting me and after probably close to 30 seconds it finally started. Leaving me to play catch up.
Once I got going I was able to make up some ground on the A only section. Passing 2 fellow A racers. Half way through the 1st lap I was able to pass another and at the end of it I was right on the back tire of Zach P. @mbz_scottsdale_service
and making a pass into 3rd right before our A only section.
Coming down one of the off camber parts I hit a loose rock causing me to high side into the brush and Zach P made it back around me putting me in 4th. Once I got going again I was able to close the gap and stayed pretty close for a couple more laps but with all the small mistakes adding up, that gap started to increase more and more. I never got passed by another Open A rider for the remainder of the race. But the results said I placed 5th which I know is wrong but onto the next.
Congratulations to @xtreme6669

‼️ Micronutrients ‼️
There are 3 categories of Micronutrients:
Let’s start with Vitamins:
Vitamins are broken down into Fat-Soluble (Vitamin A, D, E, & K) and Water Soluble Vitamins (Vitamin C, (8) Vitamin B, B1-(Thiamin), B2-(Riboflavin), B3-(Niacine), B6-(Pyridoxine), B12-(Cobalamin), Folate, Panthotenic Avis, and Biotin.
Vitamins are necessary for reproduction, growth, and maintenance of the body.
Minerals are broken down into 16 Macrominerals and Microminerals called trace minerals (Iron, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium, molybdenum, selenium, iodine, and fluoride)
Minerals are inorganic compounds needed for growth and regulation of body processes.
Your body is roughly 60% water, this is the most essential nutrient for survival!
Water lubricates joints, and the transportation of nutrients and waste.
Micronutrients are so important for your body!!
I hope y’all learned something 😊 I’d love to help y’all with any questions you have please reach out to me!

Vor dem Heben - der Lift - danach.
Kreuzheben war auf dem Wettkampf meine stärkste Disziplin, und gleichzeitig diejenige, bei der ich am wenigsten einschätzen konnte was geht, nachdem ich’s ewig nichtmehr gemacht hatte. Sicher war nur, ich wollte über 200 heben, und mein 500er Total vollmachen. Und genau das ist auch passiert. 217,5kg im Dritten, ich bin über zufrieden.. jetzt nurnoch lernen das mal technisch korrekt zu machen! #urukhaideadlift

We are a reflection of our habits
The tracks can get a little slickery, when we don't have the day to day structure we're accustomed to - and sometimes we derail ourselves. Notice, I stated that We Will, not we might. This isn't a negative, it's life.
The key is consistency, in practice and behavior. Just like any new skill or behavior, leading a healthy and fit life takes practice, and practice entails error - aka opportunities to learn, not failure.
So - practice the new, healthy, you - with the understanding there will be plenty of opportunities to improve. Don't try to avoid them - embrace them and grow.
Take your week of tracking work and nutrition, into the weekend, without the fear of needing to be perfect, and with the exception of being more and more consistent.
You got this 👊🏻😎👊🏻
People who think this way have belief confused with wishful thinking.
“Believe, really believe, you can move a mountain, and you can.”
Not many people believe they can move mountains so they never do. They might even say it’s not possible or nonsense to say “move mountain” and it to do just that.
And there in lies the problem. They have belief confused with wishful thinking.
True, you can’t wish a mountain to move... you also can’t wish to be successful and find yourself living the life of your dreams.
But you can, and people have, moved mountains with belief. Just like you can achieve success, by believing.
How? What’s the difference?
Belief... TRUE belief works this way...
Believing, and having the “I’m positive I can” attitude generates the power, skill, and energy needed to fulfill the belief.
When you believe “I can do it,” the how-to-do-it develops.
That’s the difference.
Testing next weekend..
Finding balance. There’s a saying, you know what you know, you know what you don’t know but the biggest piece of the pie is “We don’t know what we don’t know” this saying could be applied to everything from why where here on Earth, to smaller things on how we should focus our energy or our passions in life.
Humility-a modest or low point of view of ones own importance.
Arrogance-having or revealing an exaggerated sense of ones own importance or abilities.
I think some of the purposes of life are to build and have great relationships, to embrace every moment you can and live in that moment but to also learn as many lessons as you can About yourself.
To simplify my point, if we don’t remain balanced between being too humble or finding our own arrogance will never have an accurate view of ourselves. Which means we’re not growing or evolving as a human being. Just as distasteful an arrogant person is, and the fog that creates to them actually improving or being a better person to others, equally negative is the person always putting themselves down. I’ve learned this lesson myself, being extremely hard on myself for the slightest mistake, always breaking myself down, to the level of self punishment, like a brutal workouts, or abstaining from anything I would feel is pleasurable. I’m still always finding that balance, and it would be hypocritical for me to tell others how to, but good reflection not only on how we treat others but how we view and treat ourselves, remaining accurate and balanced so as to absolutely learn as much as we can about ourselves, what we’re capable of, and to learn from all those around you. That’s just another reason to surround yourself with quality people that will challenge you, and to find the good in who you are, what you do, and project as little ego as possible.
Everybody talks about functional fitness, like it's something new. The secret is, it's not. All of the movements, we use, in the gym - enhance function, in the real world. While there's certainly an art, backed by science, to programming, general physical preparedness can be achieved by hitting the movement patterns we already know. Don't over complicate things - and make use of your local or favorite trainers: we love this shit.
